How To Buy A Diamond: Diamond Color

It’s often misunderstood that most diamonds are colorless. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Most diamonds are nearly colorless with yellow or brown tints – most often light yellow.

Diamonds come in many colors other than yellow and brown. Some of the most rare colors are red, green, and purple. With colored diamonds, more color usually equates to higher value, so the most vivid, purest colors are the most desirable.

Size makes a difference in a diamond’s color – the bigger the diamond, the more obvious its color. The differences in color can be subtle, but they can cause dramatic changes in the price.
